Uglification mob takes on Third Creek

An assembly of trash-minded Knoxvillians spent Saturday afternoon throwing rubbish into a watershed flowing through Tyson Park near the University of Tennessee campus. A group called Keep Knoxville Ugly tossed glass bottles, food packaging, old tires, plastic bags, rusty pieces of metal and soiled items of clothing into the creek and on the ground nearby in the first of a series of "uglification mobs" in and around the city. "The idea is simple," said uglification mob member Katelin Dauer. "We descended on this location on Saturday and threw a bunch of crap on the ground and in the water. Our goal is to make everyone who walks by on the greenway trail just ashamed to even be a member of the human race."
